What personally identifiable information does The Ethnic Voice Accord collect from me?

The Ethnic Voice Accord collects information in several ways. Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, The Ethnic Voice Accord asks for your name, email address, business telephone number, country and a few questions related to your specialty. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to The Ethnic Voice Accord, which allows you to access the various protected areas of the site. Also, if you contact The Ethnic Voice Accord we may keep a record of that correspondence. Whenever The Ethnic Voice Accord collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

What are cookies and how does The Ethnic Voice Accord use them?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, The Ethnic Voice Accord may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. Some areas on The Ethnic Voice Accord where you are prompted to log in or that are customizable may require that you accept cookies. This avoids you having to enter your login information many times in one day.

With whom does The Ethnic Voice Accord share my information?

As a general rule, The Ethnic Voice Accord will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. Please see the Terms of Service or User Agreements for each of our products and services for more detailed information about how your personal information may be shared. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed. Business Partners & Sponsors: The Ethnic Voice Accord may disclose your personal information to business partners or sponsors, but this is specifically described to you prior to data collection or prior to transferring the data. If any personal data about you were ever to be shared, we will tell you before we collect or transfer the data. Many promotions offer opportunities to request additional information from sponsors. By requesting more information, you give The Ethnic Voice Accord permission to transfer your personal information to the sponsor so they can fulfill your request. In many instances, only your email address will be shared. If more information will be shared with the sponsor, you will be notified prior to the transfer.

From time to time, you may be offered the opportunity to receive materials or special offers from third parties. If you opt-in to receive information from these third parties, The Ethnic Voice Accord will (with your permission) share your name and email address with them. Third Party Data & Data in the Aggregate: Under confidentiality agreements, The Ethnic Voice Accord may match user information with third party data. Also, The Ethnic Voice Accord discloses aggregated user statistics (for example, 45% of our users are female) in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. Other: The Ethnic Voice Accord may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating The Ethnic Voice Accord’s Terms of Service or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) The Ethnic Voice Accord’s rights or property, other The Ethnic Voice Accord users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. The Ethnic Voice Accord may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.

What are my choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of my information?

Only The Ethnic Voice Accord (or agents working on behalf of The Ethnic Voice Accord and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings and only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those The Ethnic Voice Accord services that require registration in order to participate. The Ethnic Voice Accord does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?

Your The Ethnic Voice Accord Account Information and The Ethnic Voice Accord Profile are password-protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. The Ethnic Voice Accord will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your The Ethnic Voice Accord account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. Whenever The Ethnic Voice Accord handles personal information as described above, regardless of where this occurs, The Ethnic Voice Accord takes steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with the relevant Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

What else should I know about my privacy?

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
